Please come along on Sunday 25th March 2018 to celebrate Palm Sunday, where we are delighted to be joined by a special visitor from the Leeds Donkey Sanctuary!!

The plan to upgrade the rural road through North Rigton to Beckwithshaw will make it more efficient at relieving traffic congestion caused by housing developments in the Harlow and Otley Road areas to the west of Harrogate. This is happening without notification by North Yorkshire Highways or consultation with your parish council. Increased traffic will impact the safety and environment of North Rigton. Please join us in objecting to these plans.
